BRUTE BRIGGS & STRATTON 125PSI 10 GALLON AIR COMPRESSOR NO FILL PRESSURE BROKEN REED VALVE & GASKETS



I got this from Pete Lombardi, it doesnt build up any pressure even after I put an air filter and quick disconnect valve coupling on as well as drained the water from the bottom of the tank. I also added some SAE30 motor oil although I believe it had plenty of oil. I filled it up to the crankshaft. As I took off the shroud and the head, I was able to inspect the piston and rings which seems fine. The reed valve was broken in half and it was missing some gaskets which I believe is the reason why it doesnt build pressure. I searched for hours online for the parts and I couldnt find anything on these parts from Briggs. I did end up buying parts I think would fit from Campbell and Hausfeld for $20. We will see if they do the job.

  1. Probably too late to help you, but maybe someone else.
    You completely missed the other reed valve. It's underneath the valve plate, which you didn't remove in the video. Best to replace both when you service these things as they're dirt cheap. The head gasket is a rinky-dink silicon, weird-shaped o-ring affair that fits in a groove in the head. You may have a hard time finding parts for a Brute, but the Alltrade Trades Pro model 836563 is the same compressor. I got my parts right from Alltrade.
    However, in a pinch, it seems you can use a Campbell Hausfeld valve kit (part # HL026100AV) which contains the valve plate, both reed valves, and a gasket set. Note that the head gasket in the CH kit is a regular composition gasket, and not the dodgy looking O-ring gasket. As such, I would definitely be using some good quality gasket cement on it, as the gasket is quite thin in the horseshoe shaped bit in the center, and would likely be the first point of failure.

  2. I got a 3 gallon pancake air compressor for free from my uncle that needed a pressure switch and my dads friend gave my dad a 8 gallon air compressor for free and the oil-free pump was bad so I took the pump off the 3 gallon air compressor and put it on the 8 gallon tank now i got me a perfectly good air compressor for air tools for free

  3. Also get some Teflon tape or Teflon paste and get a air/water separator / oiler, drain the tank umder pressure so the water flows out, it will be rusty, do that once a month, hit home depot, in the gas pipe section and get some 1/4 fittings to make the connections, good luck buddy you will love air tools, I've done it all so you need advice hit me up.

  4. And buy two sets, incase you mess up, or just to keep one on hand, keep it in the bag it comes in and toss some clean oil in the bag to store it, the second set you buy that is.

  5. I have an old sears 220v 175psi tank dual piston 5hp compressor I got for 10 bucks rebuilt it, new pistons rings Reed valves gaskets, put new belt on cleaned my shit…. Lol…. Put synthetic Earl in and the thing is a beast, I also got a 135 psi, a 150psi, a 125psi a 135psi, and last but not least 125psi, and rebuilt them all, dude you rebuilt a oppy this will be child's play…. Reed valve clean the head and rebuild it like a engine head and gasket.

  6. I've rebuilt all my compressors Reed valves and all, ie head gasket, and get some synthetic compressor oil so it will run better in the winter, get the oil from Amazon its the best for the price…. rebuild it, get the rebuild kit from ebay for your model number, it's super simple.

  7. Briggs and Stratron themselves referred to their engines as motors way back in the day. I'm working on a 1941 model IR6 right now and the front page of the manual says use Mobil arctic 20 in the motor. You can make a gas engine run off other fuels besides gas, like propane, does that take it from engine to motor? I guess back than, they weren't so anal about that, engine, motor, you knew what you were talkin about.

  8. The gauge on the left represents the pressure in the tank. The right gauge is the output pressure. The knob on top of right gauge controls output pressure. Usually 90psi for air tools. Also, the gauge on the right is called a regulator because it regulates the output pressure.
